The House of the People (Hindi: लोक सभा, IAST: Lok Sabha) is the lower house of the bicameral Parliament of Vishwamitra with the House of Councillors being the upper house. The members of the House of the People are elected by an adult universal suffrage and a first-past-the-post system to represent their respective parliamentary constituencies, and they hold their seats for five years or until the body is dissolved by the Rashtradhyaksh of Vishwamitra on the advice of the Council of Ministers. They may, however, resign anytime by addressing a letter to the Speaker. The maximum membership of the House allotted by the Constitution of Vishwamitra is 20 who are drawn from the states and territories on the basis of proportionate representation.

The House of the People can be summoned and prorogued by the Rashtradhyaksh anytime at his pleasure and meets in continuous sessions.

History

The Lok Sabha, highly inspired from the lower house of the Parliament of India served as the lower house of the bicameral Parliament of Vishwamitra until 31 August 2016 when the upper house, then known as the Rajya Sabha and the lower house were merged into a unicameral legislative body named as Senate and later as Sadasya Sabha and National Assembly.

The total membership of then Sadasya Sabha was increased to 21 in 2016 and later to 28 in 2018. The seats were again increased to 32 in June 2019 on the basis of proportionate representation. Under a delimitation carried out by the Rashtradhyaksh in January 2021, the seats were reduced to 20 and has been such since then.
